PREPARING THE GnooND FOR PLANrTiNG CorroN.-Here is an article from the Vicksburg Times, containing matters of especial interest to a large class of our readers: Mr. Editor-As the time approaches for this important work, I wish to call the at tention of those engaged in it to an error which prevailed before the war to a greater extent than any fallacy where was so much depending on its correction. It was a saver of time, and was not visible to the eye, though the results were always felt, but never attributed to the right cause. It was that practice of leaving to the center of the cotton ridge hard ground for the cotton to take root in. Of all the crops grown cotton requires the deepest and mellowest soil to root in, having a long top root, which runs deep into the ground. How perfectly absurd to suppose it could penetrate hard soil and give more nutriment to the stalk and its branches and fruit than it would i ý.t- a.r~~4-iaeý le~tr~o ground. Cotton has but few late roots, and draws its sustenance from the depths of the earth rather than the surface, and it must be aided by the intelligent planter reaching these souroes of supply. But to prove the folly and absurdity of this prac tice so universally believed in, and I will give a fe#facts. In 1855 the writer had allowed an im manse bank of cotton seed to collect at his gin-house, and not having time to spread it on distant parts of the field, he had it hauled on a 16 acre cut close by, which had been cultivated for fifty years. Some of the beat teams were put on this cut and plowed in the middle of the row, as deep a furrow as possible. Then the seed was thrown in this farrow, and filled in to the top; he then had the ridges thrown up with this rotted cotton seed an the center.' This was all done in March. About the 1st of April tjae cotton was planted in the usual way, with many misgivings amongst the laborers as to the results, and the overseer said that the cotton would die out. When the top root reached, the cotton seed beneath, the cotton grew off beautifully, was the first to bloom, the firs?-to mature, and the first to epee, and en the mat of September we gath meid Mieea hundred of seed cottoe to the aereand picked it again 1st October, when we gathered fifteen hundred nounds tear to the acre, andBhad.another picki Eseen itsof soens near 21 bales. B. IMPORTANCE oP FAExiNO.-We clip the following very sensible remarks from the columns of the New York Working Farmer. They are as true here as in New York: Young men from the farms, if you have met with disappointments in your esmsy at proflssioul or mercantile life, and do not see your way clearly to success, go back to the soil which suffers for laborers, to the fertile acres which remain untilied because there is an increasing dearth of skilled work men in the most healthful and permanently productive of all employments-before it is too late. In proportion to bur increase of population, the ranks of agriculture are sadly deficient in talent and numbers, and are growing thinner every year. The source of all wealth is the soil, and the nations can only grow rich as the latter is made more and more productive, while the waste placesrare reclaimed and as Increased area is brought under cultivation. Yet the " go-betweeas"-the wor'd's carriers those who live by siply to, ?eying the pro ducts of the farm to the manufactory, mad rice versa, and others who derive a profit directly or indirectly from this traffic, are increasing in a fearful ratio compared with the real producers of wealth, the tillers of the soil, whose products would make the land wax fat with riches. If this process of deterioration.goes on-if the ranks of agri cultare are net kept filled with competent laborers-we may look out for a speedy deelineof our mational wealth. Tun Csmuss Ta.

Joux Baown's SOUL. - Something is wrong with John Brown's soul; it does not seem to march along with that elastic step as of yore. The Judiciary Committee of the Senate have reported adversely upon Mr. Sumner's bill to strike out the word white wherever it occurs in the naturaliza tion laws. Is John Brown to stick there ? Then, again, in Kansas, dear spot of his early pilgrimage., an attempt to strike the word white out of the Constitution of that State was defeated in the Senate on the 17th. A PISTOL PLANr. - A few evenings ago the Librarian of the Long Island His torical Society was startled by the report of a pistol in the book alcoves. He made search, but discovered nothing, and at the time no other person was in the rooms. The next day the assistant librarian beard a sim ilar report, and a close investigation revealed the cause. An exhibitor had placed in the rooms a case of tropical plants, among them a pistol plant, which is a sort of not. Atga certain state of its growth the shell of it bursts with violence, and with a sharp sound exactly resemblingtthe report of a pistol. The shivered shells of jhese were foundin the bottom of the case. Yo-Buxrrm FALLs IN CAxaFoaxuA.-In the deep valley of Yo-semite, are several falls far surpassing in height the Falls of Niagara.

In looking from the bottom of the gorge at the immense height from which the water descends, the stream, which is 87 feet in breadth at tin top, seems to be only a foot and a half wide.

The Darien Ship CanaL WATER COMMUNICATION BETWEEN TIlE AT I.ANTIC AND PACIFIC. Hion. Caleb Cushing has returned fron the gai tal of Columbia, the most northers of tife. ImwIaUn itepubtiesr whithei he was sent by the Department of State, and the draft of a treaty he there negotiated foi the right of way, etc., of a ship canal asrost the Isthmus of Darien or Panama, is now before the Senate for ratification. Several months ago, Secretary Seward came to New York city and held a confer ence with some of the most enterprising business men of the city in relation to this subject, which resulted in the formation of an association with MIr. Peter Cooper at its head, intended, if the reports were favora ble, to be organized into a company. Re turning to Washington, Mr. Seward sent MIr. Cushing to Bogota, and the result is a treaty by which the republic of Colombia concedes to the United States the exclusive right to constr~uct an inter-oceanic canal across the Isthmus of Darien at any point which may be selected by the United States. o Colombiah government cedes six miles ~f land on each side of the canal, one half t its own benefit and the other for that of the -,arty undertaking the construction of the wo, f The Colombian government is to receive ie.. ter cent. of the not income for the first ten years; aS.I w1 the canal i3 paid for, twenty-five per cent. of Ita -yet profits. The treaty is to be ratified by the United States within ten months. We ascertain from air Cooper that the entire length of the proposed canal will not exceed thirty miles, with a good harbor at each terminus, and only about seven miles of rock cutting. There are several points on either shore which may be selected, but none have yet been decided upon. Whether either of those already surveyed will be selected or a new survey made, is not yet determined. We are assured. however, that upon the ratification of the treaty, measures will at once be taken to begin what will, when completed, be the greatest work, in importance, of this century. [Scientific American. Grant's Cabinet. Mr. A. T. Stewart's selection for the impor- t tant post of Secretary of the Treagury at- 8 tracts great attentipn in business circles. He is perhaps, the first merchant of the country in wealth and in success. In this * market he imports dry goods to the value of a $.25,000,000 a year, and is the largest bu7er a of gold in the market to pay duties on im ports. No doubt he believes in a contrac tion of the currency ; and with these views, and the place he holds, no man can have so much power over the currency as him self. His wealth is reported at not less ' than $25,000,000. Though a warm suppor- C ter of Gen. Grant and the war, Mr. Stewart : has not been looked upon as a prty san. He prote during the war, "All that I have of position and wealth I owe to the free t institution of the United Stabs., under which, in comoon with all others North and South, protection to life, liherty and pro- F ner. -n use ousuun, us ,,ufuss - u son's visit to New York en rooe to the tomb e of Douglas, Mr. Stewart headed the com- a mittee of citizens which received him, and t was prominent among the guests at the e banquet at Delmonico's where the Presi- a dent made his famous speech. At the time t of the Philadelphia Convention he was ; counted as one of the favorers of the third I party which that assemblage was intended a to inaugurate. Mr. A. T. Stewart was born at or near Belfast about 65 years ago, of a family de- f scended from one of the Scottish colonies, established in the north of Ireland. He was left an orphan in his 8th year, and from a that time until his 18th was under the care 1 of his maternal grandfather, who intended a him for a clergyman. With this view he t was sent to Trinity College, Dublin, where I he is reported to have taken a creditable t stand in his classes. In 1826, he came to New York, and for some time supported a himself by teaching. A few months after i that he took to trade, had a small shop op posite City Hall Park, where he dealt a chiefly in laces, gloves, and other like tri- * fles of haberdashery, and here commenced his great good fortune. The names of the new Cabinet naturally suggested a good many incidents in their e history. We give one elsewhere in the ad- 1 vancement of Grant, from a plain, retired captain, acting as clerk., to the Presidency. Cox and Dennison secured the defeat of Robert C. Schenck and the frst election of John Sherman to the U. S. Senate, because 4 Schenck, a Corwin Whig, refused to asup port Fremont on account of personal diffi culties between his brother, Cow. Schenek, and Fremont in California. At the out break of the war, Cox was in the last months I of his term as Senator. Gov. Dennlson ap- 1 pointed him Brigadier-General of Ohio Vol- I unteers about the same time that he made I Geo. B. McClellan Major-General, and un- I der,McClellan's orders he inspected the State Arsenal, receiving the gathering vol unteers at Port Jackson. After the re-en listment of his three months for three years, I he was ordered to West Virginia, to make 1 the advance up the Kanawha Valley, which McClellan then designed to be the leading I movement of that first successful campaign of the war. Gen. Cox's career as Governor was une ventful. He was not fully in sympathy with his party. After Johnson had vetoed the Civil Rights bill, the Freedmen's Bureas bill, and sundry subsequent ones, he visited Washington, called a meeting of Ohio Con gressmen and read'to them a long and very earnest letter, in which he strove to con vince them of the honesty and purity of Johnson's purposes, and besought them to forego their opposition and yield someghat to Johnson's prejudices on Civil Bights and o her disputed questions. The Coagress men refused to be governed by his advice. Gov. Cox announced his intention not to be a second time a candidate. He was poor not worth $5,000, was approaching middle age, and felt the necessity of making money, He accordingly removed to Cincinnati, en tered upon the practice of law, and was soon in the enjoyment of a large and grow ing business. Thus he declined the Com missionership of Internal Revenue when ten dered him by Mr. Johnson; and when Grant urged Johnson to get over the Stan ton difficulty by appointing Cox Secretary of war, there was reason to believe that he would decline that. Of Adolph Boric, all that is known of him is, that he is anhonest, liberal man, Vice President of the Philadelphia Union League. lie was introduced to Grant by Gsn. Meade, and acquaintance soon ripened in frend ship, which has ended in a Cabinet appoint ment.

Washburne. The New York World is decidedly in fa vor of General Grant appointing a cabinet of Radicals. It gives this by no means un satisfactory reason: He has got to humor the Republican party as a wise physician humors the faneies of an insane patient, as a means of controlling him. Gen. Grant cannot alter the past: with a Congeres so largely Republican, he cannot procure the repeal of the favorite Republican measures. He may, therefore as well make.thb best of them, and select as his advisers, men who have powerfully con tributed to thelt establishment. ADvERTISITG TESTED5-An Atlanta pa per, in tte course 9 an article on tl Amereai 18M0, who 1ad been suc cesaful for years, concluded at the begin aing of one year that he would try the vir toe of advertising. That year he spent eighteen hundred dollars with the printers, and his own testimony is that he did three times.the amount of business that he had ever done before in the same length of time. He still keeps his name and business promi nent in the papers, and finds his profits steadily increasing. Other merchants of Macon, witnessing the success of this house, followed its example, and now the Macon papers are among the best patronized in the tate, and the business men of that city are among the most substantial in the South. We happen to be able to testify to the truth of this statement in every particular. For the size of the place, there is more advertis ing done in Macon, than in any other city of the South, and hence her extraordinary pros perity since the close of the war. The name of nearly every merchant and business man in the city is to be found in her daily papers; not occasionally and condensed into the smallest possible space, as if the parties were afraid somebody would find where they are, but regularly, sytematically and prominent ly, and in many instances with an apparent disregard of cost. They know what they are at, and go into the papers and stay there because it pays. The result is practically demonstrated in the rapid growth of busi ness and the accumulation of fortunes. PUT THAT AND THA ToGaETHER.-The Cincinnati Commercial, commenting upon acts of violence in Tennessee, the Memphis Avalamehe replies. Only a few weeks ago four men were taken from an Indiana jail by a mob and hanged, and violence and bloodshed in that State are as common as in Tennessee. Yet, the Commercial has not recommended mar tial law for Indiana. -Horrors equal to the Dickeps assassination every year stain the criminal annals of Cincinnati and Hamilton county; and nearly every portion of Ohio furnishes like repasts; but the Commercial fails to urge a " little wholesome military rigor" for Ohio. Recently, one of the most prominent citizens of Illinois was mur dered in cold blood by an unknown assassin; and Chicago furnishes more horrors every year than the entire State of Tennesspe. Why doesn't the Commercial demand a "lit tle wholesome military rigor" for Illinois ? Philadelphia allows scarcely a month to pass without contributing some bloody dra ma that shocks the country; and New York city is almost literally drenched in blood. A "little wholesome military rigor" might work wonders in those cities. Why does the Commercial withhold the recom mendation ? It seems that blood is as hot in the North as in the South, and that assas sins are as cool, deliberate, determined and orafty in " God's country" as in Tennessee. And as the North was not even for a day the theatre of a war which disorganized society, and threw all the turbulent ele ments to the surface, there is no reason why such a condition of affairs should exist. All men are equal in the North. Bayonets are unknown as law-givers. But in the South men spurred by malice and the love of plun der, and protected by bayonets, rule with a rod of iron. If, under the circumstances, the South furnished tenfold more horrors than are perpetrated within her borders, even then such articles as the Commercial's would be grossly unjust. When the Com mercial commences recommending " a lit thewholesome military rigor" for Northern as well as Southern scenes of horror, its motive will be deemed worthy. But its present course invoking the scourge for the South alone, shows malice of the basest sort. The act would reflect discredit upon even so infamous a publication as Forney's press.

" Why, sir, I served under you at the battle of Fort Donelson, and when ybu ran away at the beginning of the fight, I ran after you, else I might have been killed. God bless you, my preserver, my benefac tor !" A plucky old fellow, whose son was a stu dent at one of the New England college., spent the day with him and stopped to tea. When his cup was filled he seized a bowl of salt, which he supposed to be sugar, and put the usual quantity in his tea. Sly glan ces and suppressed " snickering" led him to suspect that something was wrong, but the old fellow, who didn't like to be laughed at. worried it down, and putting on a face that was intended to make everybody think that he liked his " dose of salts," he called for another cup, and upon receiving it said to the head snickerer : " Young man, will you be kind enough to pass that bowl of salt !" The salt was passed, and amid the most breathless silence, he dipped a couple of spoonsful into his tea, stirred it up, and tasted it with a look of apparent satisfac tion " Why, MIr. ," said the young man opposite him, " do you drink salt in your tea ?" "Always," answered the plucky old man, with great emphasis, and in his pleasantest manner. A LITTLE ANEcDOTi:.-Some years ago, the then democratic mayor of Lafayette. Ind., was upon a visit to a friend who was warden of the state prison at Michigan City. Of course the warden took great pleasure in showing the municipal head everything of interest in the institution; and in this category was conceived to be the initiation of a new convict, who had just arrived, and bad not yet been invested with the prison livery. For this purpose the mayor was conducted by his friend to the room in which the little operation of investure would occur, and in which the prisoner awaited the same event, but probably with somewhat different feelings. The proper prison functionary had been notified by the warden that a prisoner was there in awaiting to be clothed and ap proached his honor the mayor, carefully measured with the official eye his length, breadth, and thickness, and, producing a second-hand uniform, ordered him to strip. " What do you mean, sir ?,' " If you don't instantly strip, you'll find out." "D-tion, sir . I must insist upon an in stant explanation of your conduct, sir." And here, naturally enough, every nerve and sinew in the mayorial body quivered with indignation at the offending official; while, at the same time. the pWtience of the latter being unequal to any further strain, was upon the point of enforcing his order ri I nmpis, when a timely burst of laughter, from the door annnounced the entrance of the warden and a select audience of appro ciative friends, explained matters.
